Ha, ha. Sounds pretty negative eh! Actually I'm feeling quite chipper right now. Ksena has been sick since Tuesday. Mia and I got sick last night and we were all a bunch of zombies today. Mia has perked up and so have I but poor Sen is still not well.
I was supposed to go to the midwife today but had to cancel the appointment. That was a huge bummer! I always feel reassured after a visit with the midwife.
Grrr...thought for sure the baby was going to come last night but no. I never had false alarms with the first two but I was sort of counting on it this time since this is the third pregnancy. I imagine it will happen a few times before the real event. Apparently if you can 'walk it off' then it's not real and that's what I did and it went away immediately. I remember my Mom having a false alarm with one of my sisters and when Mom & Dad came back from the hospital shortly after they left we were pretty disappointed! I think that was Emily because when she was born I woke up the morning after Dad and Mom had left to go to the hospital and was happy to see that they hadn't come home yet. I almost strangled Taun when her answer to my first thought of the morning 'I wonder if Mom had the baby?' was 'Yea, she did.' HELLO!!!! You'd think she would have woken me up when she took the midnight phone call but she just went back to bed without telling anyone the good news. I've never let her live that one down.
-So sorry Taun and Janet if I freeked ya'll out last night when we were playing Settlers. No more games at my house for a while if this baby is going to keep tricking me.
I'm officially done today...that is after I head over to the office and wrap things up. By 4:00 I should be done and I'm excited. I loved the position but not now that I'm pregnant (or due I should say). It took way longer to find a replacement than I'd hoped but when people did start to apply it was a flood of response. Hope you ladies enjoyed coffee at Janet's today. Who's house next week?! :O)
That means 3 weeks and 5 days to go until this baby's due date!!! Dan is taking 8weeks paternity leave!! I can hardly wait. It's barely sinking in and because it is too good to be true I'm trying not to think about it. He will of course be working upstairs most of the time but he'll be here when his ladies (and possibly a little man) need him. I would say he's a brave man!
This morning Mia opened her presents. Daddy is home sick today so she didn't have to wait till he came home. Tonight we will have a little party with family and eat Mia's favorite-'Cheezy Cake'.
A new chair
LeapFrog learning pad...we had bought puzzles a while ago that fit this system so now Mia can play the games incorporated into the puzzles. She somehow new that the puzzles weren't just puzzles and she couldn't wait till we made the 'song' work on her puzzles.
